Program Description

This joint honours degree combines two complementary and overlapping disciplines, giving you in-depth knowledge of the advanced molecular biology techniques and research which are the basis for understanding all forms of life.

Molecular biology is a growing subject which is making enormous impact in many scientific areas, including the study and treatment of many human diseases, pharmaceutical development, and the complex relationships between our environment and ourselves.

Note:
Fees for full time Undergraduate EU/International students will increase by 3% for each subsequent year of study.
